Hi All,

    I've got a doubt.WOuld it be possible to connect to another computer on the TCL Cable network by just knowing its IP Address,at least between the same OS's.I remember reading somewhere that it requires NetBIOS for this and mostly all cable providers disable this due to security issues.Can anyone shed some light on this..

Cheers

standard networking shouldnt work, but DCC and P2P stuff should (as per normal).

I would suggest you using something like Hamachi (www.hamachi.cc) if you're just wanting to access the files on the remote PC.

the traffic will get deducted anyway. beside all IP has its own gateway, and may not be routed from one gateway to another gateway directly. it could possibly be routed to a proxy/pool then out to internet. as for transferring between one TCL cable user to another, it may work that way, so TCL can monitor your data usage.

You pay for all traffic on a cable plan, even if it's to another TCL modem.

This did not used to be the case in the old days where internal traffic was free.
